Scent Name: Lilith’s Feel Better Flowers

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – 

Scent Description and Notes: “I’ve been trying to teach Lilith a little bit about herbalism, aromatherapy, and plant lore. We talk about all the plants that are growing in the yard, we talk about all the tinctures, simples, and other concoctions that mom makes, and we play a board game that’s all about wildharvesting herbs.

Lilith and I were talking about oils one day at work, and she told me that she wanted to make a perfume with all the “feel better flowers”. I told her that I’d put in every flower whose purpose she could remember…

… so here’s what she made:

+ carnations (“to make people happy”)
+ lavender (“for sleeping and keeping away bedroom monsters”)
+ honey (“it’s for smiles and good throats”)
+ ginger (“for tummies”)
+ aloe (“for too much sun”)
+ blessed thistles (“for buronic (sic) plague”)
+ chamomile (“for happy families”)
+ chocolate peppermint (“because mom grows it just for me”)

Please remember! – this is a perfume, not a medicine! Please don’t drink, rub on wounds, use as a suppository, or anything else nutty. -http://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/happy-birthday-lilith/liliths-feel-better-flowers/

Scent: 

  • ITI:  It’s lightly floral and strongly herbal with chamomile, thistle, ginger, and carnation being the strongest notes on first sniff.
  • Wet: It’s more herbal with chamomile and then lavender taking center stage,  I still can pick up on the thistle, but not much else is coming through.  It reminds me of a poultice. 
  • Dry: After 12 hours, the chocolate peppermint comes though all the herbal notes, leaving the scent to be what I imagine a chocolate Star-mint  on a bed of thistle and  lavender smell like. 

Other Impressions: None.
